Jerusalem Maps on Wikipedia

​​

The National Library of Israel has released a collection of 200 high-resolution unique maps of Jerusalem in collaboration with Wikimedia Israel. This collection of  ancient maps, spanning from 1486 to 1947, contains a variety of styles and languages.


To celebrate this, Wikimedia Israel will hold an editathon / mapathon in the National Library. It will be a social event to create, update, and improve Wikipedia  articles about maps, cartographers, and locations. The editathon will take place on December 15th and will include a guided tour in the rare map collection of the

National Library.


Wikimedia Israel encourages the Wikimaps community to use the maps in Wikimedia initiatives and other open source projects and wishes for a wonderful Holiday Season
and a Happy New Year!
